Story Starters: 4-12-14

Story Starters are prompts that must be the first part of your story. To participate, please tag your post with p31tStarter and link back to this post. My favorite post for each story starter will be reblogged on Friday.*

Flash Fiction (less than 1,000 words):

There was no escape.

Short Story (Over a 1,000 words, but we’ll set the limit at 10,000 words)

If only s/he had never found that platypus in his/her locker.

*Please note: If there are no posts linked to this post or tagged with p31tStarter, there will be no post reblogged. Also, any stories with anything inappropriate will not be chosen. Thank you!



  1. I want someone to write something for the second one. Why in the world did she find a platypus in her locker? I MUST KNOW! (I’d write it, but . . . Camp NaNo. I may try the first one, since at less than 1K, I may be able to squeeze it in as a campfire story or something. I am writing a story involving a female bard, after all.)


    1. Me too! I may actually have to write something for that one. I actually don’t mind if you try to squeeze the short story prompt into the flash fiction size. In fact, extra points if you do! 😉
